Key Stage 1
Key Stage 1 comprises of children in Year 1 and Year 2.
As an academy, Endeavour Academy is not legally required to follow the new National Curriculum introduced in September 2014. However, we have chosen to devise a curriculum in line with the knowledge and skills promoted in the National Curriculum as this suits the needs of our pupils.
The curriculum is delivered through an effective combination of teacher delivery, pupil interaction, teacher led activities and pupils’ active learning. Discrete teaching of Maths and English take place each morning and the thematic topic teaching of foundation subjects takes place in the afternoon. Homework is presented at an appropriate level for each year group and consists of consolidation and practice of classroom learning and/or opportunities for home research.
Where children have gaps in learning, staff work closely with them through additional support and interventions in order to close those gaps and improve ability and confidence for all children.
